AVPN to host inaugural India Policy Forum

New Delhi, Nov 28 (UNI) Asian Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN) will host the second edition of the 2-day India Summit from December 5 here in the national capital with a closed-door gathering of policymakers and social investors.

The India Summit on December 6, themed Facing the Future Together, will open up to a larger group of funders and resource providers coming from a diverse range of sectors and issue areas from education to health and nutrition to climate action.

“With an active impact investing landscape, philanthropists broadening their giving, and corporates providing a strong backing for social impact, India has one of the most advanced social economies in Asia.”, says Naina Subberwal Batra, CEO and Chairperson of AVPN.

Nonetheless, there are huge amounts of potential for policy initiatives to create more market opportunities, and AVPN seeks to be the bridge between the public and private sectors.”
